Delirium Tremens

29,000 feet going up; freefall coming down Scaling the nursery slopes of the Everest of F1 is the most arduous task new teams can face, but getting even that far is no guarantee of further progress or a safe downward journey If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, so the old expression has it.

Formula One - Seasonal Review
